How would you take it?

A guy friend of mine asked me to crop and edit a bunch of his photos and make an album for his brother. When he looked at the pics he said they are fine and talked about some of the things he liked about them. When he asked me to do it again from another vacation I told him (jokingly) that he is too hard to please. I told him saying "they are fine" isn't a compliment. To me it sounds like It will do, they are okay. He said it means good in his book...I told him the ladies on cafe mom can decide if fine is a compliment !! How would you take it if you work hours and someone said it looks fine?? This is only us playing so keep it fun..no bashing.

  • Fine (in guy talk)= I am uncomforable making nice comments and am not well at expressing my feelings and I think you did a wonderful job and I love you for it and I just, as a guy, have no way to express my feelings so I told you it looked "fine"

  • Fine means good but not overly thrilled, in my book anyway.

  • I agree with Istrickland. Guys don't like to show too much feeling. It could have been done by Picasso himself, and he still probably would have said "it's fine."

  • "Fine" for most guys means they like it and it's great.
